"Why Don't You Write Me" as written by and Paul Simon....
Why don't you write me,
I'm out in the jungle,
I'm hungry to hear you.
Send me a card,

I am waiting so hard
To be near you.
(La, la, la)
Why don't you write?

Something is wrong
And I know I got to be there.
Maybe I'm lost,
But I can't make the cost

Of the airfare.
Tell me why
Why
Why

Tell me why
Why
Why
Why don't you write me,

A letter would brighten
My loneliest evening.
Mail it today
If it's only to say

That you're leaving me.
(La, la, la)
Monday morning, sitting in the sun
Hoping and wishing for the mail to come.

Tuesday, never got a word,
Wednesday, Thursday, ain't no sign,
Drank a half a bottle of iodine.
Friday, woe is me

Gonna hang my body from the highest
Tree.
Why don't you write me?
